Queensland will open the border to millions of Sydney residents from February 1.

Border checkpoints will come down after travel restrictions were put back in place in late-December due to the Northern Beaches COVID outbreak.

Wednesday marked a tenth consecutive day without a locally acquired case anywhere in New South Wales, prompting the reopening of the border.

The announcement followed consultation between Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young.

Palaszczuk told Sunrise it would be welcome news for both families and the struggling tourism industry.
